Tino is an internationally-recognised expert in the use of satellite remote sensing for solving complex water, climate and biodiversity problems

Dr Valentin (Tino) Heimhuber is a Postdoctoral Researcher within the EcoEng group at the UNSW Water Research Laboratory. 

Tino is an expert in satellite and drone remote sensing of river systems, estuaries and coastal wetlands. He typically uses large satellite datasets to develop open-source tools for solving complex water, climate and biodiversity problems. (

In recent years, his research has focused on the restoration of coastal blue carbon ecosystems via tidal introduction. He has undertaken several feasibility and cost-benefit assessments for blue carbon wetland restoration projects and has developed a best-practice guideline for planning and undertaking such projects in accordance with the Australian Blue Carbon Method.

Tino is also an expert on climate change, global sustainability and carbon markets and frequently speaks to large audiences on these topics as part of his science-comm initiative Turnthataround.
